REVIEWS

“[Alan] Paul, whose work has emerged on the city’s biggest stages, has a showbiz aesthetic that’s refreshing
— Nelson Pressley, The Washington Post
The Shakespeare Theatre Company’s musically inclined The Comedy of Errors, is funny, cute, and just the ticket in these difficult times. With a vibe part Monty Python, part Zorba the Greek, and aesthetically reminiscent of Herge’s Adventures of Tintin, director Alan Paul creates a perfect, cheerful moment for Shakespeare’s tale of long-lost twins and their inevitable mix-ups
— Kate Wingfield, Metro Weekly
GUT-BUSTING…Alan Paul’s deft direction supplies some of the finest comedic moments of the D.C. theater season.”
— BroadwayWorld
EXCELLENT…[Alan] Paul’s production is heaps of fun.
— Two Hours Traffic
Paul’s production keeps Shakespeare’s original language intact and inserts original songs at regular intervals, giving the already zany show some extra oomph
— Caroline Jones, Washington City Paper
Paul is a master of pacing who understands that the farcical complications have to fly past, while the more serious moments—there are some—need more deliberate handling
— Susan Berlin, Talkin’ Broadway
